      I was going to recommend the Coke from Mexico. The reason it tastes both different and better is that it uses real sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. In cases from CostCo, or single bottles here and there: we see them at Marina Liquors in the Marina Shopping Center, San Mateo (at Hillsdale and Norfolk), and at various small hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants.
      Max's Opera Cafe serves Dr. Brown's.

      I've seen "heritage" sodas at Bev Mo...pretty sure they have Dr. Brown's...not as sure about glass-bottle Coke...

        I've seen Dr. Brown's soda at both Luckys and Safeway here in Central Contra Costa County. Luckys generally has a better selection iirc. I know for sure that the Pleasant Hill location carries it. It's not in glass bottles though.

        I think I've seen the little 8 oz glass bottles of Coca Cola at Las Montanas in Concord, and also at Target in Walnut Creek.
